Laval player tops CFL draft list

The Province - - SPORTS -

Laval Rouge et Or de­fen­sive line­man Mathieu Betts is the top-ranked player in the CFL Scout­ing Bu­reau’s De­cem­ber rank­ings for the 2019 Cana­dian draft. It’s the first time a U Sports prod­uct has been ranked No. 1 since Man­i­toba’s David Onye­mata — now in his third sea­son with the New Or­leans Saints — topped the fi­nal rank­ings ahead of the 2016 draft. Betts, a Mon­treal na­tive, helped his team win the Vanier Cup last month. Ok­la­homa State line­man Shane Richards of Cal­gary, Arkansas State re­ceiver Justin McIn­nis of Pier­re­fonds, Que., Ten­nessee line­man Jonathan Kongbo of Sur­rey and Kansas line­man Alex Fon­tana of Toronto round out the top five.
